Saturday, June 27
Come out to the 1st Street Jetty in Virginia Beach on Saturday, June 27 for Logstradamus. It is a semiformal surf-related event that was created on the fundamental that the person having the most fun wins. Yes, it is a single fin surf competition. Yes, it is a celebration of music. Yes, it is slightly bizarre. But more than anything, it is a venue for the young and old alike to unite in a mutually strange environment and laugh. In memory of John “Jack” Asher Kelsey, all proceeds from the Jack’s Aloha t-shirts and raffle tickets will benefit the NICU at CHKD. For more information click here.
